Damien Patton

Founder & CEO, Banjo Inc.

The idea for Banjo started when its Founder, Damien Patton, became determined to solve one of the most common but difficult problems out there — making the world’s disparate data purposeful — and doing so live. Over the past 7 years, Banjo has continued to pioneer artificial intelligence technology that reinvents what’s possible in a truly connected world.

Banjo unsilos data and synthesizes critical information live, which dramatically shortens decision cycles during crisis situations such as natural disasters, school lockdowns and child abductions.

Damien is a technical authority on the ethical use of Artificial Intelligence and data. Banjo’s first patents were focused on protecting user privacy by ensuring the system didn’t utilize any personally identifiable information.

As a military veteran of Desert Storm and former crime scene investigator, Damien draws on his life experiences for Banjo’s mission of saving lives and reducing human suffering by using technology for good.
